After having missed out on a few Kickstarter projects due to lack of timely information and notice, would it be possible to create a Kickstarter portlet for the main page which could reference active Kickstarter projects?

We essentially have this in place already via Gone Cardboard. You can now filter Gone Cardboard by games that are currently on preorder, and even further filter to see Kickstarter projects only! You can even sort by Kickstarter end date to see which projects are ending soon.

How do you further filter for Kickstarter?

You have to click through the home page module to the main Gone Cardboard system, which has a more robust set of filters:

I must be dense. I still cannot find any reference to "Kickstarter." I see pre-order, unreleased, released, etc. Is there a literal "Kickstarter" option or are you saying that the Kickstarter items are intermingled with other pre-order/unreleased items?

Once you choose the pre-order filter, the options for the other filters will change. It's a two-step process to get to the Kickstarter filters.
